I love my kids. Worth more than all the beer in the world for sure. The problem is they have too many friends. They all love it here but lack the proper respect. I hope to teach them. If it was my kid that did it I would have spanked him proper. He was a 8 year old playing with my 6 and 3 year old sons.

I've had a foster dog escape during the boil once, and my dog usually is just sun bathing right where I need to be walking, but no lost beer due to them. My heart aches for you, sir. I think I would have cried a bit had that been me.

I daresay that little bastard isn't allowed at your house anymore, no?

8 year olds make great cleaners. Time for him to spic and span everything in your brewery, then do allt he cleanup for your makeup brewday.

I would not consider that a spanking offense. And besides spanking is only a short term lesson that needs to be done right after the event. I would think up a longer term repetitive chore for that kid and every time you brew he has got to go get you all the equipment you need, just not the glass things!

btw - my kids are kept far away from my brewing stuff when it is in use.

I have girls 8 and 9 Years old, they love helping on brewdays and they respect the carboys as they sit because they know all the work that goes into them and they get to tell all those who try my brew that they helped make it.

- my advice, get them involved, its also good bonding time

+1 on he blew it and is no longer welcome to come to your house. Let somebody else enjoy his presence.

I would not allow him near my brew gear, nor would I give him any chore to do concerning my equipment, as he does not listen. It ain't your kid, so you can't do any corporal punishment, but banning him from your place is a must.

Be sure to tell his folks what happened and just why he isn't allowed over.

Tough Love. Eight is old enough to take adults seriously THE FIRST TIME.

I feel for you. I would certainly tell his parents about him not listening to you. Can you imagine if the kid had grabbed the hose 10 minutes earlier and spilled hot wort all over the place. Someone could have gotten seriously burned.

You have my sympathy. It might be a good idea to keep children entirely away from the brewery for safety reasons as well as to avoid disasters like the one you just experienced. Be thankful that it was only some beer that was lost and no one was injured. See, there is a bright side to it if you look close enough.

I really don't like having un-disciplined children around and about under any circumstances, but when I'm brewing they are banned from the area. Fortunately, I don't have any of my own, so it's only very rarely that I have to deal with them.
